On September 2, 2010 at approximately 10:30 pm Officer E.L. Chrisman of The Martinsburg City Police Department conducted a traffic stop in the 900 block of Winchester Avenue for defective equipment.
Officer Chrisman was assisted by Patrolman First Class B.L. Rouse. Officer Chrisman made contact with the vehicle operator, who originally gave a false name and date of birth. After a brief investigation officers identified the driver as Julia Lynn Waddell (35) of 345 Kerns Street Inwood, WV 25428. A license and warrant check revealed the Waddell had a suspended operator’s license and was wanted through Shenandoah County Sheriffs Department, Virginia for Failure to Obey a Court Order.
Waddell was charged through Berkeley County Magistrate Court as a Fugitive from Justice. Waddell was transported to Eastern regional jail, where she is awaiting arraignment.
